Common Eider, King Eider
Rob Fisk has always been a master of bleak landscapes, certainly with his ensemble 7 Year Rabbit Cycle, but more recently so with Common Eider, King Eider. Following up one beautifully crafted Root Strata release with another, this time he's fleshed the band out to a four piece and it couldn't sound more disarmingly beautiful. The pieces hum and crackle like the final throes of frostbite creeping across the tundra. Add in contributions from Grouper's Liz Harris and Charalambides' Tom Carter and this begins to shape up into one very well chiseled piece of subtle doom.
